Title: Healthy Relationships Middle School Educators Toolkit
URL: https://www.loveisrespect.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/middle-school-educators-toolkit.pdf
Description:

Every day millions of lives in the U.S. are devastated by violence. On average, 24 people a minute are victims of physical violence, rape or stalking by an intimate partner. That adds up to more than 12 million women and men a year. The reality is that this doesn’t only affect adults. There are millions of young people in this country, many of whom may be students of yours, whose lives are affected—sometimes shaped—by violence.

This resource toolkit includes scenarios for teacher and student discussion, questions for students, and classroom activities.

Title: Characteristics of Healthy & Unhealthy Relationships

Description:

Respect for both oneself and others is a key characteristic of healthy relationships. In contrast, in unhealthy relationships, one partner tries to exert control and power over the other physically, sexually, and/or emotionally.

This is a great resource that defines health and unhealthy relationships and gives many examples for each. This can be used by the teacher in creating learning activities or lesson plans.

Title: Characteristics of Healthy and Unhealthy Relationships
URL: https://youth.gov/youth-topics/teen-dating-violence/characteristics
Description:

The resource is information from youth.gov about identifying warning signs of unhealthy relationships. It is important to educate youth about the value of respect and the characteristics of healthy and unhealthy relationships before they start to date. Youth may not be equipped with the necessary skills to develop and maintain healthy relationships and may not know how to break up in an appropriate way when necessary. Maintaining open lines of communication may help them form healthy relationships and recognize the signs of unhealthy relationships, thus preventing violence before it starts.

This alignment results from the ALEX Health/PE COS Resource Alignment Summit.
